Evan Williams Product Visualization (3D/CGI)

Evan_Williams-viz

I’m a Beta tester for Lightmap HDR Light Studio for Cinema 4D and this image was created during a lighting workshop I had the other night. I modeled and rendered everything in C4D, including the water effects.

It was never planned to become a final visual, that’s why the bottle is empty and the actual model isn’t really a Evan Williams bottle. Made some postwork in Photoshop to add some aging look to the image.

Taxi Driver (3D/CGI)

Tennet-taxi-1280px

A NY taxi that I created for the cover image for a popular swedish TV-show called ”Welcome to Sweden”. The photos were shot by photographer Linus Hallsenius and I camera matched the cab with his photos and rendered and postworked the car for the final comp. Used Vray for rendering.

Gold design (wip)

drink_FT-02

This is a first draft as a test for a friend working on something for someone… I drew the design in Illustrator and imported it into Cinema for the 3D work. Vray was used for rendering and some post was done in Photoshop. Finished to this state in one day.

Interior Sofa

An interior test where I modelled the couch in 50 minutes, using Cinema 4D and ZBrush for some detailing work and UV layout. I used VrayForC4D for the render. More interior work is coming soon!

The new Volvo 121 Amazon (3D/CGI)


This project started as a modelling excercise. I used Cinema 4D for all modeling and the final render. For the final studio shot I tried to mimic the feel and spirit from the 1960’s adverts when the car was in production.

Just a rope (Cinema 4D/ReeperX)

I made this using Cinema 4D with a plugin called ReeperX. I made some tests before figuring out how to make all splines twist the way I wanted them to. When the mesh was finished I used a Spline Wrap deformer to give the rope some wavy shape. I also added some short Hair before I rendered it using Advanced Render 3 and GI.

Programs used: Cinema 4D R12 / Photoshop

Worldwide advertising campaign (retouch)


I made this series of images for a past retouching studio I worked for. The campaign was used worldwide so I had to change language for each country that used them. The coolest ads I did was the one for Russia and one for Japan. Both used their own special letters and characters, which made it pretty tricky to do a perfect layout in the beginning.

Milk cow (3D/CGI)

We got a request at work today to create a ”Dala cow” (instead of the famous swedish ”Dala horse”) for our client Arla. I wanted to try this, so when my kids were a sleep I fired up Cinema 4D and started modelling. Time ran really fast and in just a couple of hours I was pretty much done with it. I created the ”Arla Dala cow” using Cinema 4D, a 2D-logo as reference and polypainting in ZBrush. The piece of wood was also created in ZBrush. The backimage is a scenery from Dalarna that I found on Google. Hope you like!

Long time no see (3D)

Bowl and Spoon

Finally I got some time off for personal projects again. I’ve just installed Cinema R13 Studio, which just has been released, and it’s filled with new features.

For this image I wanted to try a photographic lighting setup and render it using Cinema 4D’s Advanced Render. I started off by using a photo reference that I liked for inspiration. The bowl and spoon was first modelled and UV’d in Cinema R13. I then created some grunge textures and reflection maps in Photoshop for the table, bowl and spoon.

Back in Cinema again I started to experiment with lighting and the new ‘Physical renderer’. It renders really nice, but I wanted this image as a 30×30 cm print, so I chose to use the old Global Illumination instead. It was much faster… probably because I haven’t had time to experiment with all the new settings though.

I rendered everything as Multipasses so that I could put the image together in Photoshop CS5, where I also added some torned edges, for the old look… My first ”draft” was done during a one late night, but I then continued tweaking the image for a couple of nights more. This is what I came up with.

BMW 330 ”The desert chase” (photo & retouch)

This is a personal photo and retouch project that I did back in 2005. At that time I was working in one of the bigger retouch studios in Stockholm and car retouch was one of my main jobs.

I was really inspired to try and photograph a car myself, so one weekend I brought a friend with me to a suburb south of Stockholm and we found this small closed road that would do fine for the photoshoot. I had some ideas for the final image and the concept was simple, but I needed to capture one sharp photo of the car in motion (which I would later retouch the crap out of :)). I used real film (I didn’t own a digital SLR camera then), so there was no room for any mistakes.

I photographed my friend in his BMW from the window of my Mini Cooper. We drove slowly, about 15-20 km/h, but that was enough to capture the motion and sense of speed in the scene. The desert and mountains in the background were created from several other photos and the helicopter I found on Google. I thought that it would add to the feeling of a chase!

”The Ice man” (retouch)

A retouch I did for a former studio where I worked. The image was part of a car advertising campaign. I had to rebuild the whole background and make a lot of changes to the clothes. All the snow was also added to the guys face and clothes.

Candy dress (retouch)

Image retouch for photographer Felix Odell. The dress was actually made of real candy hearts. I gave both images the ”washed out” style and I also extended the walls in both pictures.
